The Edmonton Oil Kings have added 19-year-old defenceman Carson Golder in a deal with the Victoria Royals.
In exchange, the Royals receive a ninth round selection in the 2022 WHL Prospects Draft.
Golder, a product of Smithers, B.C., has appeared in 54 WHL regular season games, all with Victoria. He skated in 50 contests during the 2019-20 WHL season, recording two assists.
The 6-foot-1, 186-pound rearguard was originally signed by the Royals in August of 2018.
